Ex-Manchester United forward Memphis Depay has criticised Manchester United owners, the Glaziers in his newest song.

The currently Lyon man dropped the diss on the track ‘Big Fish’, from his album ‘Heavy stepper’.

Depay said “I be planning to make some statements, I need money like the Glaziers.”

It is rumoured that Depay is referencing the debt that the Red devils find themselves in, with debts rising 133% during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Over two seasons with United, from 2015-2017, Depay made 53 appearences, scoring 7 goals.

Many labelled the Dutch international as a flop. He joined the club for £25 million, on a 4-year deal, from PSV Eindhoven and failed to replicate his scintillating form from the Dutch league.

Since leaving Manchester United, Depay has gone on to play for Lyon in France’s Ligue 1, in a 4.5-year deal rising to reportedly £22 million.

Since joining the club, Depay has gone on to make 159 appearences, scoring 49 goals and become one of the most sought after players in Europe.

During the 2020 summer transfer window it was rumoured that Ex-Holland manager, and new Barcelona manager, Ronald Koeman was heavily interested in signing Depay.

Depay has other interests outside of football though, starting a rap career in 2017.

In June 2017, he dropped his debut song ‘LA Vibes’ – a freestyle which quickly gained notoriety.

He has gone onto release a variety of both singles and freestyles, whilst collaborating with artists such as Winne, Nana Fofie and Rass King.

His shot towards the Glaziers has endeared himself to Manchester United fans, who before this perhaps he wasn’t very popular with.

For a long time, fans of United have been opposed to the Glazier families ownership of the club, which they purchased in 2005.

Debts have been rising consistently for years and on-pitch performances have, at times, left a lot to be desired, with United failing to win a league title since 2013, the year of Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure.

With the release of his album and a combined total of nine goals and assists so far this season, Depay continues to perform well, on and off the field.
